    Could you explain me why you use the Subjuntivo Imperfecto here:”Después de que se me pasara el enfado, fuimos a comer a casa de mis padres” I’ve always learned that ‘después de que’ is subjunctive when there is doubt about something that is going or not going to happen, but in the past indicativo. Hope you can help me out here! I’ve listened to the explanation in the premium version, but still I’d like some extra info on this!

    ps. love the show! Thank you for all the hard work you put into this.
